This is the most obvious improvement I noticed. Offense: LCW has developed his own sharp and powerful smash that LD was having trouble anticipating and returning. You could tell LD during the match that LD missed quite a significant number of smashes from LCW. Speed: I thought LCW was quicker than LD in term of speed. Moves: Definitely LCW, I love his elegant moves combined with fancy trick shots that LD was having troubles with. LD's style was very dull and rigid, however he was able to overpower LCW with his physical fitness. With LD's style of play, he only has one or at most two more years to last while LCW's career expectancy should be much longer. Skills: Definitely LCW. He is the "Ronaldinho" of Badminton. If ther is a MVP award for badminton, definitely it goes to LCW.

But can't blame you as you are blinded by where you come from. I cringed when I read chibe_K's post. I also find his praise and assessment of LCW as being extravagantly excessive and exaggerated.
